Peter B. Fisher is a senior associate attorney assigned to Curtis Legal Group’s Sacramento office. Since joining Curtis Legal Group in 2009, Peter has focused his practice on helping injured victims. He finds nothing more rewarding than achieving a successful result for those injured through the fault of others. Pete is a tireless advocate for his clients.
Peter’s extensive personal injury work encompasses automobile, trucking and motorcycle accidents as well as trip and fall and slip and fall accidents. He has also represented those injured by bicyclists, fires, electrocutions, dangerous conditions and work injuries. Peter has also successfully recovered for victims of assault and battery, elder abuse, and product defects.
Peter knows that you have to understand the law, the facts and your clients’ injuries and damages in order to achieve a successful recovery. Peter has successfully litigated cases in the United States District Courts, Superior Courts of California, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims as well as achieved success in alternative dispute resolution, including arbitrations and mediations.
Peter was previously a law clerk for the Honorable Judge Michael Cruikshank at the Pima County Superior Court in Tucson, Arizona, handling research questions and obtaining valuable courtroom experience while gaining an in-depth understanding of the functional attributes of the Superior Court system.
He also was a Certified Student Attorney for the Tucson City Public Defender’s office during law school, defending criminal charges against those unable to afford representation and working directly with the Public Defenders drafting and orally arguing motions, taking officer depositions, and working as an advocate for the less fortunate.
Peter has been a volunteer Judge for Stanislaus County Youth Court since 2010. Youth Court is an alternative to the traditional juvenile justice system for qualified minors (first-time misdemeanor offenders). Juvenile peers act as juries while high school students volunteer as prosecutors and defense attorneys. Peter feels that the process of youth court trials, as well as the rehabilitation-based sentences, effectively and successfully turn young lives around for all involved: the offending minors, the juries, and the young “counselors,” who look up to him.
Peter has also been involved in the Stanislaus County Mock Trial Competition (High School Level) and the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law’s National Ethics Trial Competition (Law School level). He draws from his experience in the legal field to judge students on their ability to present a case to a jury, make evidentiary objections, defend objections, present law, and motion issues, take witness testimony and deliver opening statements and closing arguments. He feels this is a symbiotic educational experience whereby he is able to hone and sharpen his litigation skills while the students are presented with an excellent opportunity to hear advice from practicing attorneys in the “real world” outside of their classrooms.
Peter is a 2004 graduate of the University of California, Santa Barbara, with a B.A. in Business Economics. He received his law degree from the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law in 2009.
He was born and raised in the Central Valley in Modesto, CA. When he isn’t representing clients, he enjoys weightlifting, disc golf, racquetball, ping pong, the Giants, 49ers, and Kings.
